I've been having a look at the price for next year’s hols based on the same as this year......
How’s this for a price hike! I can't believe it, it's almost the equivalent of 21 nights (based on this years prices).
Sept 2009 14 nights at Reethi Beach, AI, Std Villa, including transfers etc is just, and I stress just under £800 more than we paid for this year.
I’ve been hesitating about booking for next year, because of the present financial climate. I have to say this is not encouraging me to book now.
We are totally in love with Reethi and in its price range, don’t think we could get much better, but this sort of increase is making me rethink the Maldives for 2009. I could dry at the thought of it and as much as it goes against the grain, one of us has to be sensible.
I am so fed up with paying the price for these alleged professional financial experts that completely screw up and we are left to tighten our belts. Who ever decided that it was a really good idea to let people with no income, no job or assets have a mortgage. Then throw their hands up in the air when, same people can’t pay and subsequently default, should be……. Well I can’t print what I’d like to do to them. “Only in America” I hate that phrase, because it seems that every hair-brained idea they have eventually ends up biting us in the A***
Ok end of rant, going to sit and sulk for a while, possibly re-think my plan to sell a couple of the grandkids.
